    Good stick.

    Darran Hallett
    Wow amazing

    I bought the vkb stick due to the throttle on my x56 breaking and using it with my x56 stick I now wish I bought 2 the stick feels amazing I will be back for a second one

    Great Value

    May have been my first experience with a flight stick, but these have met all my expectations. There's enough inputs to map out all the necessary keybinds in a decent chunk of games, and even though it's made of plastic, there's no obvious creaking when used. Definite recommend.

    pretty okay for the price

    needs lube to zero when lowering damping

    Hi Ethan,

    The sweet spot

    I got them for a hosas setup in SC and they are great basically everything I need in the ships is set across the two sticks the quality is very nice they feel sturdy and don't creak like cheaper plastic sticks do the button presses are nice and the hats feel precise very happy I brought them

    Thank you for the great review Mark.

    We highly appreciate your positive comments and trust that simmers new to VKB will find them very valuable.

    Regards, VKB Support team
